Control Panel: Creating and managing labels


Written by NSoft Vision


Labels provide a robust method for organizing and managing cameras across multiple locations in your Vision space.

Understanding Labels

Creating a label is done through the control panel and functions as a space-level setting. This implies that after you create a label and add cameras to it, the label becomes visible to any user whose group has access to a camera that is part of that label. For example, if a label contains four cameras and the user has access to only one of those cameras, the user will still see the label, but with only one camera visible.

Finding the Labels section

Follow these steps to create a new label (see Figure 1):

  1. Navigate to the Control Paneltune_FILL0_wght300_GRAD0_opsz20.png, located in the bottom left corner of the starting interface.
  2. Open the General tab in the main navigation bar of the Control Panel.
  3. In the General tab, select the Labels tab in the navigation bar.
  4. Click the baseline_add_circle_outline_black_18dp.png sign "+" located in the bottom right corner to create a new label.

Step 1: Create a new Label

In the first step of creating a label, enter the name for your label and provide an optional description. Proceed to Step 2 by clicking the "Next" button located in the bottom right corner (see Figure 1).

Please note that the description is optional, but it can provide additional context or information about the label.

Step 2: Camera selection for Labels

In the second step of creating a label, you will be selecting the cameras to be associated with the label. Follow these steps:

  1. Activate the checkboxes next to the cameras you want to select.
  2. Once you have selected the desired cameras, click the "Create" button to complete the label creation process.

You can use the search bar or filter options to easily locate and select the cameras you want to include in the label.

Managing Labels

Label management is an ongoing process. You may need to create new labels, modify existing ones, or delete obsolete labels as your security needs change.
